MEMO: Update on the O-Train Confederation Line (RSA)

The City of Ottawa media relations have just released the following memo as an update regarding the Testing and Revenue Service Availability of the Confederation Line.

- MEMO -

Mayor Watson, Councillor Allan Hubley, Chair of the Transit Commission, and City staff will host a briefing next week to provide further updates about Trial Running, Revenue Service Availability (RSA) and the opening of the Confederation Line. Details regarding the briefing will be shared with Members of Council, Members of the Transit Commission and the media in the coming days.

RTG has made significant progress during the Trial Running period, running various scenarios of regularly scheduled service and testing system readiness for passenger service by exercising the Confederation Line system at full functionality. This is a complex and rigorous process where high performance standards must be met as a prerequisite to achieving RSA and opening the Confederation Line to the public.

As previously communicated, the City expects to open the Confederation Line to the public in September.

More information will be provided at the briefing.
